Michigan Mountain Mayhem is only a week away!

MMM only a week away and it looks like it'll be a sunny day this year! It was a blast last year and I'm sure it will be even better this year.

Who all is going to be riding?

Fred, do you have a .gpx of the course for Garmins?

I'm going with my Uncle. I've been training for it since March. He's only gone on one ride
I think I'll have a decent chance of finishing, hopefully in about 4 hours.
It'll also be the first bike event I've ever done.

With 1000 riders this year and an all new route I did not have time to get the Garmin downloads. I am hoping that riders will give me the links so that I can use them for next year.

You had a crazy fast time last year are you doing the 200K again?

we are having a huge beer tent with bands and 2 wheel technique will be performing Saturday. Are you hanging around after the ride/

Last year I did the 200k in 6:56 ride time, I'll probably be around afterwards.

I might take it easier this year though, I raced down at Mt Pleasant the next day last year and I could barely hang onto the pelaton on a flat race course. If I end up racing this year, I might take it a bit easier.

I rode up around Torch Lake yesterday and saw some route markers, The look really easy to see!

I can post my Garmin file afterwards for you also.
